German term or phrase: Absetzstelle
In German medical report, finger has a fracture, a "mehrfragmentäre Nagelkranzfraktur".

My question here comes from the sentence: "Befund: Im Bereich der Absetzstelle überschießendes Granulationsgewebe."

What is the English translation for "Absetzstelle?"

Thanks for suggestions!

area of necrosis

...would be my educated guess, based on the following line of thought:

Absetzstelle = Ablagerungsstelle and one of the meanings of 'Ablagerung' is debris, which makes me think of necrosis in the context of "mehrfragmentäre Nagelkranzfraktur".
